The body language alone shows this won’t go well.
Ever since the altercation between Porsha and Kandi where Porsha had her meltdown, the overall story arcfor the upcoming season of RHOA has changed. While people like Tammy got her peach snatched in Miami for someone else’s violent behavior, and Robin Levy and her wife Christina Flores were eliminated almost entirely from this season of RHONJ for an altercation with Jacqueline Laurita in Stowe, Porsha Williams continues to be coddled and protected by production. It sure seems like the women of RHOA don’t receive the same standard of care as those on other shows.
When Porsha attacked Kenya and dragged her by her hair across the stage, while Kenya put up no resistance at all, Carlos King ran out on stage and cradled Porsha and carried her away like a wounded bird. A police report was made and, last I heard. Porsha still has that as one of her open criminal cases in Fulton County court. I believe there is another one regarding her verbal assault on a police officer while being arrested for a traffic infraction or something.
Porsha went nuts again the very next season, coming for Cynthia this time. Then again in that season, Porsha attacked her friend, beating her down in a dark alley outside a Christmas party. I believe Porsha did one “anger management” session and that was filmed for the show. That was the big CYA move that Bravo NYC apparently came up with. One class with a TV therapist on camera.
Marlo, Glamping in Gucci
The RHOA are all done glamping and back home safely. So I feel comfortable revealing exactly where they went now. I didn’t want to be responsible for any crazies heading to the woods to find them. Here is what TamaraTattles Sources have revealed about their adventure. The RHOA went to Banning Mills. If you are one of my few Married At First Sight readers, this place is familiar to you. Last season, if you recall, instead of wasting money on a trip to a winery or someplace romantic, they sent David and Ashley to Banning Mills for one final couples building activity. It did not go well.
Bannings Mill is a whopping 45 minutes outside of Atlanta. It is most used as a corporate retreat and the focus is heavily on team building activities. The women did not do any tent camping but they did stay in the treehouse rooms. You can see those in the first picture here. They all crossed the long bridge to go to one treehouse room for the photo. The treehouse rooms are the nicest accommodations there, but they do sort of wiggle around and they are not in any way a luxury room. Bannings Mill is really pretty and great for hiking, but these ladies spent most of their time doing scary activities that rely on trusting their team.

I am pretty open with you guys about how the sausage is made around here. I am fortunate to have some good sources for RHOA. That said, as much as I would love to get them all in a room and say, “Okay tell me in intimate detail everything that is happening during filming, and don’t leave a thing out!” and then push record on my voice recorder. That would be nice. But these people are busy. The key is not to bother them too much. And the most important thing is knowing the best question to ask. This is the hard part because I want to ask a million questions. Or at least ten. But one, and MAYBE two is the way to go. That’s why it’s good to have more people to ask.
I’m telling you all of this to set up a photo. I really don’t want it to go to Twitter when I hit publish so that means it can’t be the first or the second photo in the post. If you can’t wait scroll down.
As TamaraTattles.com first exclusively reported, The Real Housewives of Atlanta are on a camping trip.
I am fortunate enough to have people sending me photos of the camping trip. The interesting thing is their interpretations of what they have seen on snapchats. I’m not sure they are watching the same ones as there have been quite a few. One researcher says, “They were laughing and having fun. The tell is that Kenya is with Sheree and Marlo.” This I want to believe. The other was unsure who Kenya was hanging out with in the very beginning and is hoping that these three are together. I’ll keep you updated as more news rolls in.
Everyone reports that the trip seems to be going along in a very lighthearted way. However, it’s Kandi who is doing most of the narrating and Kandi is always upbeat and tries to stay out of the drama. But if you press her, like Porsha did recently, you are going to have a problem.
We also saw the ladies get off to what appeared to be a late start (shocking!) that began at least in part with a meeting at the Chateau Sheree construction site.
Before we move on to the rest of the photos, is that Kenya’s hand on Phaedra’s shoulder? Is she playing nice with the dark side???

As Tamara Tattles was the first and only site to exclusively report, the Real Housewives of Atlanta (and some unexpected friends) are on a camping trip this weekend. And it sure seems like it was quite the struggle to wrangle the ladies yesterday.
But first, Let’s start with Friday night, in the photo above you can see Kandi and Marlo at Kandi’s R&B showcase featuring her two groups that she has been producing, Glamour, and Next. There was another performer at this showcase named Hazel Renee. Hazel is a young woman from Detroit and she is also on the camping trip as Kenya’s plus one. Kenya is referring to her as “her sister.” Is she related? Is this a homegirl from Detroit type thing? Alas my friends, I don’t know everything. I do know that Kenya doesn’t have a sister and this young lady seems young enough to be her daughter. I love that Kenya is there supporting Kandi and the bond that I keep noticing throughout filming. Kenya and Kandi as friends is something we haven’t really seen before. Unlike all the folks screaming about having the same people on the seasons over and over, I can’t say I agree. We have new relationships sprinkled with some new faces this season and I have a good feeling about the upcoming season. That said, I’m always hopeful for things that seem impossible. Just yesterday I checked TJMaxx to see if maybe they got an excess lot of Hermès or Bvlgari perfume. I like to live in a place where anything could still happen in my life. Because otherwise, what’s the point. If we knew, with all certainty, that our lives were only going to be about endless shelves of Justin Beiber perfume at TJMaxx, we’d never get out of bed. Dare to dream with me, people. It’s going to be a great season!

Cynthia’s new view of the great outdoors might come in handy
Part the gallon of tea I over spilled here over the weekend, in a very long post with way too much information that was a bit disjointed as it was literally rolling in while I was trying to type on a completely different spot of tea, involved Cynthia Bailey having to bail on a job due to a change in filming plans for RHOA.
As I have mentioned several times before my access to information on filming is reliant on my ability to ask the right question at the right time. It is important for me to watch the social media of the ladies in order to know when and how to use my access to those sources who will answer my questions. In this case, the question I needed to ask was, “What is this mandatory all cast filming on Saturday?
Because it was the a holiday weekend and sources are not really open to being bothered during their limited downtime, I asked you guys first. We speculated about what could be happening (something with Nene?) or what we wish was happening (A Porsha Intevention?) while I waited for the right moment to ask someone who might know.
Since that time we’ve learned that it has nothing to do with Nene because she will not be on Season 9 at all. And we never were very optimistic about the likelihood of a Porsha intervention. But now I have all the tea….
